Mes Olives Preferees (My Special Olives)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Condiments, French

 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Plain Greek or Italian
  • -olives
  • 2 Shallots; whole or sliced
  • 4 c Garlic, to 5 cloves; barely
  • -crushed
  • Thyme, rosemary, fennel
  • -seed, chives, sage; fresh
  • - or dried
  • 1/2 Lemon; juiced
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Tabasco or hot pepper flakes
  • 1 c Olive oil


Place the olives in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.

Add to the jar shallots, garlic, a handful of fresh or dried herbs, chopped
or left whole, lemon juice, a few shakes of Worcestershire sauce and a few
drops of Tabasco or shakes of hot pepper flakes.

Pour olive oil to cover the olives and herbs and seal the lid. Shake a
couple of times to mix all ingredients well. Leave these olives to plump
in the oil and absorb the perfume of the herbs. As you use them replenish
the stock with more olives in the same oil mixture until it at last seems
too tired to do the job. The herb-scented oil is then perfect for brushing
on grilled foods as they finish or in other cooking.
